    I am at nerves end when i read that sea apples can be very toxic if stressed out:eek:..i didn't buy a sea apple but have recently discovered sea apple like tentacles coming from a piece of live rock which has shrooms and star polyps on it as well..i am just being cautious as to what i should do..move slowly...speak softly..as not to agigatate it at all...lol...but in all seriousness it's wedged in the live rock which is approximately a little smaller than an A5 book or page...should i rather have the rock removed...?:blush:if that is the case i would hate too lose some pretty luminous Green star polyps and elephant ear shrooms..together with some Caulerpa growing from the rock as well...with a Brownish kelp like algae...

    What color are the tentacles? how big is it?
    Could be a harmless sea cucumber, sea apples are also sea cucumbers but just cause havoc when they die. Most sea cucumbers are hardy and are beneficial for a tank. So I wouldn't stress.
    What about a pic?
